I

Mrs. Margie Watson, First Grade

I graduated from National University - San Diego with a major in Interdisciplinary Studies, with an emphasis in Elementary Education and a minor in Literature. I was an escrow officer for 10 years until I had children. I was lucky enough to have been a stay-at-home mom for the past 10 years. As soon as my kids were in school full time, I started to be a substitute teacher and help out with the lunch/yard duty program at Sacred Heart. I also have helped with a few of our fundraisers through out the year, Back to School Bash, Oktoberfest and the Father Connors Memorial Golf Tournament.

I love to spend time with my family, fishing, traveling, going to SF Giants games, 49er games and Warriors games. I am excited about this new year with my first class of first graders. They will hold a special place in my heart! I am happy to have joined the Sacred Heart Family.

Mrs. Veronica Perez, Second Grade

I graduated from Chapman University with a BS in social science. After graduation I became a substitute teacher and was soon offered my first teaching position as a kindergarten teacher at Tom Hawkins Elementary School in Tracy. I have always had a great love for children and enjoy being around them. I knew instantly that I had found my calling.  In 2005 I was fortunate enough to become a stay at home mom and for the next 11 years I was busy raising and running around my 3 children. When my oldest son started kindergarten at Sacred Heart Catholic School I knew we had found our home. It was then that I went back to my teaching roots and became a substitute teacher at Sacred Heart.  In 2016 2nd grade became available and I knew it was my time to return to the classroom full time. I am blessed beyond measure to spend my days around children. I love watching them learn and grow as individuals and I am honored to have a part in that process.

Mrs. Sharon Raimondo, Third Grade

I am very excited about teaching here at Sacred Heart. I grew up in Gustine and attended OLM through 8th grade. I was fortunate enough to attend school while we had Sr. Mary Katherine as principal. And Sr. Marion Shea was one of my teaching inspirations, along with Miss Bautista. They both took an interest in me and helped me work up to my potential in school. More importantly, they modeled for me what it was to help others, to work with passion, and to follow in Jesus’ steps. That’s where my interest in teaching, and in helping others, began.

I later attended Santa Clara University and graduated with a BS in Combined Sciences. My next step was to join the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. I wanted to follow Jesus and the best way I knew to do that was to follow the JVC four tenets of simplicity, community, spirituality, and social justice. It was the best decision I ever made. During my time volunteering, I met my husband.

After working for non-profits and having my 3 beautiful children, I completed my teaching credentials (multiple subject and single subject in math) at Stanislaus State. I love math, and I love teaching.

Mr. Kyle Roach,  Fourth Grade  
Hello! My name is Mr. Roach and I’m very excited and grateful to be a part of the Sacred Heart community. Originally from  California, I moved to Tennessee as a child when my father joined the military. Although I always felt that my heart belonged here in California, it was there that I met my wife, had two boys, developed skills as a musician, found my love for teaching, and wholly embraced my Catholic faith to find my purpose in life. Through an extensive list of events that can only be described as divine intervention, I am now able to call California home again, and I couldn’t be happier!  I knew that I wanted to be a teacher when I was in high school after performing a drum solo in a talent show. As a result, some of my peers asked me to instruct them in becoming a more adept percussionist. It was through this process that I learned how rewarding teaching can be. I graduated from Austin Peay State University with a degree in History and Education. After graduating, I taught for two years in the public school system at the high school and middle school levels. When I am not at school, I spend much of my day reading, whether it is current events or comic books with my boys. I enjoy watching a movie every now and then, even if it takes 2 or 3 sittings, playing Frisbee and sometimes brushing of f the rust behind my drum set.  I also spend time with my family whenever I can. God often reminds me how lucky I am to have them!

Ms. Patricia Neky, Sixth Grade

Hi! My name is Patricia Neky. I am the 6th grade teacher at Sacred Heart.

I consider myself a Californian, now that I have spent more than half of my life in this beautiful state, but I am not a native. I come from Pennsylvania where I was born and raised. After college, I taught for a few years in Central Pennsylvania. When I received a job offer to move to California, I jumped at the chance and have never regretted the move.

I spent over twenty years working in the accounting field, with ten of those years at the Modesto Bee. As the newspaper industry began to change due to the rapid advances in communication technology, I looked again to my love of teaching. have been teaching again since 1998. I am thrilled to be back in the classroom and especially, here, at Sacred Heart in Patterson. I feel privileged to share in the Spirit and love of our wonderful Catholic community!

Ms. Stefanie Porter, Eighth Grade 
I graduated from Austin Peay State University with a Bachelor of Arts in History accompanied by a minor in Political Science in 2010. I passed my PRAXIS Exams (Principles of Learning and Teaching, U.S. and World History, and Geography) in 2010, shortly before graduating. After graduation, I applied and was accepted into the English Masters program at Austin Peay. My plan while I was in college was always to become a teacher at the middle school level. However, fate stepped in I was offered a job after graduation at the Woodward Library at Austin Peay State University. My work in an academic library was a wonderful experience. I loved working with the students and professors, but I still really wanted to be in a classroom. I consider the day I saw the ad in the Modesto Bee for a teaching position at Sacred Heart one of the best days of my life. I truly feel that teaching is a calling from God; and there in front of me, in that small ad was Him calling. I grew up in big, loving family in Columbus, Georgia, where I attended St. Anne’s-Pacelli Catholic School. My years at Pacelli gave me a true appreciation of the value of a faith-based education. I have lived in Alaska, New York, Tennessee, and I am now happy to call California my new home. I love it at Sacred Heart and look forward to teaching here for many years to come.

Mrs. Mary Ramirez ,Office Manager
I have been at Sacred Heart Catholic School 22 years. I began as a Resource Teaching Assistant due to my background with Special Education for Santa Clara County of Education. I worked with toddlers to high schoolers. Although I did not become a teacher, I was excited knowing I was still making a difference In each child’s life. I am originally from Johnston, Rhode Island but have lived in California most of my life. My husband and I decided to move from San Jose to Patterson in 1999. I am married now for 37 years and have two adult children who also attended Sacred Heart Catholic School. My daughter is engaged and getting married in November 2021, My son and daughter in law welcomed their first child in July 2020, my first grandchild!  My favorite summer vacation is Maui and have been fortunate enough to go every year with the entire family.
